    1990 Mondial T gearbox (same as the 348). I know that it's not the transmission fluid drain plug, as I've changed the transmission oil last year.

    I have been noticing the occasional drip of oil on the garage floor so I am investigating the underside of the car today.

    The plug/nut that I am pointing to in the photo turns freely and is not tight.

    Many thanks in advance. Image Unavailable, Please Login

    I've ever taken a 348/Mondial t trans apart, but my first guess would be item # 3.

    Also, I'd look for the oil seeping/weeping from higher up.

    Yes. They are the pivot bolts for the shift fork bellcranks. Sealed with O rings as I remember. If loose someone probably loosened it trying to drain oil. Not good news. Will be an issue fixing it.
